ABUJA- THERE was a rowdy session Friday at the continued consideration  of reports by delegates at the on- going National Conference as the Chairman, Justice Idris Kutigi and his Deputy, Prof.  Bolaji Akiyemi had to caution delegates by threatening to walk them out if they become unruling and refuse to adhere to Procedure Rules.

At yesterday’s plenary when delegates opened discussions on  the recommendations of Gen. A.B. Mamman led  Committee on Land Tenure Matters and National Boundaries, with Oba Michael Adedeji as deputy,  there was a sharp division between Northern and Southern delegates over the recommendation that the Land Use Act be expunged from the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as it has failed to address the problems of land due to its poor implementation.

Meanwhile, delegates adjourned plenary till monday at 9am as against 10am to resume discussions on reports of Committees on Environment and Religion, just as reports and recommendations of Committee on Citizenship, Immigration and Related Matters were adopted.
